Tanner Medical Center/East Alabama

Opened for patient care in November 2017, Tanner Medical Center/East Alabama is a more than 50,000-square-foot, three story modern hospital facility built beside the Tanner/East Alabama medical office building on South Main Street in Wedowee. (Note: Wedowee Hospital has permanently closed.)

Tanner Medical Center/East Alabama is the community's hospital. In August 2015, Randolph County voters turned out for a special referendum on a 1 percent sales tax to fund a replacement facility for Wedowee Hospital. The referendum to build a new hospital in Randolph County received wide support among those voters, with 86 percent of voters supporting the new hospital. Officials broke ground on the facility in May 2016.

Local leaders chose to partner with Tanner Health System to equip, staff and operate the new facility. Tanner has a national reputation as a leader in quality care and patient satisfaction, and a unique understanding of the vital role that community hospitals serve in our region. This relationship also gives Tanner Medical Center/East Alabama patients access to Tanner's medical staff of more than 300 physicians, including primary care and specialists.
